Being in the same scene with movie heartthrob Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart has only good words for the actor, praising him as the perfect star to play the role of vampire Edward Cullen in "Twilight." She even says she cannot imagine another actor in the role.
"Not to put down any of the other actors who came in, because they were really good, but everyone came in playing Edward as this perfect, happy-go-lucky guy," Kristen tells Teen Magazine's winter issue. "But I got hardcore pain from Rob. It was purely just connection," she adds.
Both Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, who play on-screen lovers in "Twilight", gain fame and receive intense media attention after the romance-thriller-action flick hit the No.1 spot on the box office, after its first weekend screening. Due to the success of the vampire drama, a sequel titled "New Moon" has been in the making. Kristen and Robert are rumored to get a major paycheck boost for the planned sequel, reportedly $12 million each.
Robert himself has admitted to research his role as Edward Cullen very seriously by reading "Twilight" book by Stephenie Meyer. "I kind of tried to read the book from Edward's perspective," so he says. "He's this guy seen through the eyes of someone who is completely, obsessively in love with him. So I tried to make a reality about it and take it to how he sees himself."
